There are a lot of people who have not gotten raises in years. My husband went a few years without a raise and finally lost his job to state budget cuts. An opening came up in a related field and he was given that job. Once again, he lost his job to the state budget cuts. Can you imagine how we are dealing with the higher cost of living? Regardless of how he spends his time off, he still gets more time off from being a teacher than most other people get from their jobs. Teachers in NC make above the average salary for NC. It wasn't long ago that my husband made less than the teachers do. We managed just fine with a family of four without him having to get a second job.
